The heart of England is a great place to visit so why not stay in a Warwickshire holiday cottage, Warwickshire is dominated by the great industrial cities of Birmingham and Coventry, but the name of Shakespeare will always echo through any mention of this ancient and varied county. Stratford-upon-Avon, and Henley-on-Arden (immortalised by him in his play "As You Like It", although his "sea of oak" no longer stands). Kenilworth Castle was visited by Queen Elizabeth in the 1560's before becoming one of these ruins Cromwell knocked about a bit is also well worth exploring as is Arbury Court. This was birthplace in 1819 of Mary Ann Evans, later more famously known as George Elliot, and whose novels "Mill on the Floss", "Silas Marner" and "Adam Bede" bring to life its 19th century social countryside.
